Galena Classic Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"If you live in Illinois, you’ve likely heard of Galena—a small historic town situated on a bluff not far from the Mississippi River. It’s one of the state’s biggest tourist destinations, but what the throngs of visitors often fail to fully experience is the beautiful countryside surrounding the town. The outlying landscape hosts some of the hilliest, most scenic terrain in Illinois.

If you’ve cycled in this far northwest corner of the state, the thought of pedaling this area again will likely bring a smile to your face. It’s a pleasant mix of hills—some quite big by Illinois standards—small dairy farms, lush woodland, winding streams, and mostly quiet roadways."
